This is getting to be a pattern - the GOP can't win presidential elections, and Democrats can't hold their own in midterms. The demographics are undoubtedly shifting to favor Democrats, but we seem to only vote in "sexy" elections (i.e. for president), while Republicans have built an impressive voter base that votes every time. In 2014, Democratic ideas won on the ballot everywhere. Democrats didn't. If Democrats are to stop this death spiral in American politics, Democrats have to stop being ashamed of being Democrats.
